    Well if we do one for aikido are we gonna do one for every art that might have been alive once but is now a neutered shell?

    So you haven't read the article, or if you had you've missed it's point entirely.

    In truth, NONE of them are martial arts. There was never a war when the Karate Army charged the hill of Aikido masters, and fought a battle.

    In very limited areas, some of them have been used in battle; but nothing like is implied.

    Its why martial sports kick martial art butt all day long.....

    Very nice read I enjoyed that a great deal. Thank you for taking the time to write that, I have never really understood Aikido or what the hell good Aikido is supposed to look like. I was actually kind of shocked to hear that there was ever such a thing as "hardcore" Aikido, hopefully more people read that and change their mind about all Aikido being gay.
